SEC were players were asked which area in the conference they like playing most in. Their answer: Tennessee's Thompson-Boling Arena. Per The Athletic...

Best SEC arena

Thompson-Boling Arena, Tennessee (8)
Rupp Arena, Kentucky (7)
Bud Walton Arena, Arkansas (6)
Auburn Arena, Auburn (3)
Others receiving single votes: Exactech Arena (aka O Dome), Florida; Stegeman Coliseum, Georgia; Coleman Coliseum, Alabama; The Pavilion, Ole Miss

And we have our first upset. Big Blue Nation generates big noise for the big games, and Rupp Arena oozes with tradition, but TBA is frankly a nicer facility and more consistently rowdy. The players, by a narrow margin, agreed. Even Kentucky’s EJ Montgomery.

“We couldn’t hear each other, couldn’t hear Coach, because it was that loud in there,” he said of the Wildcats’ 19-point loss in Knoxville last season. “Everyone is going crazy, everyone is against you, and you gotta play your best to get a win there, for sure,” added Nembhard, who lost by a dozen at Tennessee.

The LSU/Tenn game last year was one of the loudest basketball games I have ever been to. Hopefully the Tigers can keep winning and earn the Pmac back it's reputation as a difficult place to play.

PMAC needs some serious upgrades though and Wade plus Woody will see that through
